OK! I'll write in my blog.

But really, what I want, is for YOU guys to help me!

Here is what I'm doing. I want each of my readers (all 3 of you) to post one of your favorite recipes for me. You can do it in the comments section - or on your blog - I don't care, but I'm desperately wanting to cook some stuff and am really sick of my own recipes and recipe books. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! with sugar on top! I really want to hear from EVERYONE - seriously, don't even attempt to tell me you can't cook - just send me a damn recipe. That means YOU Annie, Broke and Angry, Hole, and especially OTTER who I KNOW has about 6 million recipes I probably want.

I'm hungry! Get to it! :)

BTW, it is my 13 year anniversary today. Happy day to us!

4. How old is your man? He’ll be 40 soon…*evil laugh*

11. Who does the laundry? Both of us, but he says I do it wrong.

12. Who does the dishes? Both of us, but if you were to ask him, HE ALWAYS does them and I suck.

Up and Running After Hell Week

I am finally starting to settle down. Not only did I not have internet for a week at home, I was without cable AND I worked, like, 65 hours or something crazy like that. My job demanded my soul last week, and apparently, I gave it to them. I think I worked 28 hours in two days. Not having access to the World Wide Web almost killed me, though, and I didn't have time to surf at work either due to the screaming and running around frantic. It is amazing I wasn't rocking back and forth in the corner.

ANYWAY, I have a very pretty new satellite dish and a new faster internet. Comcast can go fuck themselves. We also made our milestone at work and shipped surgical implants to Romania on time. Yippee! Being on salary sucks because I received no overtime last week, but I'm gonna make it up by totally slacking off this week and leave early on Monday and Tuesday.

All in all I am a bit weary and have slept most of the weekend away, but all is normal again in Crazydogmama land. So forgive me for the lack of updates, K?

Here is a picture of Louie rolling, because he can, and he doesn't have to worry about stuff like wireless modem routers and HD DVR receivers.

Tuesday, August 07, 2007

I'm being forced to do this MEME.

1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4 and write what it says.

"Initial Implant Design: 16 wks." Exciting, I know.

2. Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What can you touch?

A Kleenex Box. More excitement.

3. What is the last thing you watched on TV?

A rerun of 'Everybody Loves Raymond'.

4. Without looking, guess what time it is.


5. Now look at the clock. What is the actual time?

10:47am. I know, because I'm hungry.

6. With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?

The voices in my head.

7. When did you last step outside? What were you doing?

Walking from my truck to the door at work.

8. Before you started this survey, what did you look at?

Some old photographs I have on my computer.

9. Did you dream last night?


10. When did you last laugh?


11. What is on the walls of the room you are in?

My diploma from the UW and a 2007 calendar.

12. Seen anything weird lately?

Yes. I saw one of those Jesus Fish emblems that people put on their cars, and inside the fish it said "N' Chips".

13. What do you think of this quiz?


14. What is the last film you saw?

'Premonition'. It was very sad.

15. If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?

I'd pay off all my bills and go to Disneyland. But that's just the first day...

16. Tell me something about you that I don’t know?

When I was cooking turkey burgers last night, the paper that separates the patties was still stuck to the bottom of the one I made for Jim. He ate some of it. Oops.

17. If you could change one thing about the world, what would you do?

I have no idea.

18. Comment to President Bush

No comment at this time. Sorry folks - I don't get political on my blog.

19. Would you ever consider living abroad?


20. What do you want God to say to you when you get to heaven?

You made it!

21. Name 4 people who must also do this quiz on their blog.

I don't know 4 people who would do it who haven't already done it. If you are reading this and want to do it, do it. and let me know.

You want nice? from ME?

Normally I would just tell anyone who says I'm too "negative" to fuck off and die, BUT, I just drank an iced mocha so I'm feeling cooperative and, well, maybe a little cheeky.

I used to post all of my info on earthquakes and the coming nuclear meltdown we are going to experience, but I stopped doing that because people just want nice. Although I can understand this (sort of), this isn't my personality. If I started talking about the wonderfulness that is my life, those close to me would conduct an intervention to get me off the crack. I'm just not the glass-is-half-full kinda girl. I'm the girl who looks at the glass and says..."hmm..not only is that glass 1/2 gone, but will it be enough to sustain me in a total martial law lockdown?" Yeah. Nice is boring to me. Its not that I don't think I'm blessed. I KNOW I am. I live in the greatest country in the world, I have a nice home, I have a loyal and romantic husband with a great sense of humor, I have 2 cute fuzballs and great job. I thank God every night for what I have. Do I have problems? Well, DUH. of course. Many things in the USA are totally fucked up - you did read about the baby who got punched in the stomach to death by its father the other day, right? You know we are at war, right? I have almost LOST my nice home more times than I care to count - and I'm about the most financially unstable person I know. My husband can be a complete dick from the word 'go' on certain occasions - and don't even get me started on the two little fuzzy fuckers I own and where they pee and poop and who they try to bite. My job? Yeah, its awesome, but don't think I don't have days where I want to jam a pen into my eye. or my co-worker's eye.

So, what I'm trying to say is that there are good things, and there are bad things. I haven't been sent to the looney bin yet, and I haven't gone postal, so I MUST be somewhat happy. Right? Right. Yes. I am. Just for the sake of argument though, and to satisfy some of my loyal readers, I will post 8 nice things. Just for you. Nobody faint, K?

1.) We bbq'd some exceptionally tasty food last night, and I brought some of the leftovers to work for lunch. It was so good, I'm thinking about eating right now at 9:07am.

2.) The camera we just bought (or should I say went into hock for) was a "surprise" happy Thursday gift from my hubby (who, yes, IS quite handsome) just because he loves me. He knows I'm not a diamond girl - he gets me toys! :)

3.) My boss came to me at noon last Friday and said this: "You have been working so hard - why don't you start your weekend early and go and enjoy the sun the rest of the day!" I wanted to kiss him and hug him.

4.) I will be celebrating 13 years of marriage on August 27th.

5.) The other day one of my co-workers, who is also my friend, told me that she is so glad we met and really enjoys having someone to "rant" with about life, and to workout with and have lunch with. She is a total sweetheart, and our lives are so similar it is crazy. She doesn't judge me, nor do I her - we just enjoy each other's company and appreciate the complete honesty we feel comfortable sharing. We believe the same things religion-wise, so we are always on the same page about things, and it is so great!

6.) Nothing bounced in my bank account today. Hooray!

7.) I have NO PLANS for this weekend and I'm so happy about it! I think I will stay in my PJ's and veg-out in front of the TV, and sleep, and eat and generally fuck off. Life is good!

8.) I have a mini-vacation coming up at the end of August. Just a week off, but I love time off to do nothing or whatever I want.

There!! Happy? ;-D

Vaya Con Dios, amigos!
